    I am in the blocking in stage and I have to say it has been difficult and slow moving. I cannot understand how he got his whites so white!! I know as I come forward the darks will get deep and create contrast. Then I’ll need to bring the light but man!!! I’m learning a lot 😁👍🎨

    Naomi, that’s what I’ve been doing but it’s still not popping. I’ve blown up the image and have compared the relative values and I can’t seem to get the correct brightness. When all of that white paint dries I’ll start glazing and that should help me get there.

    I started on the foreground grass and strengthened the darks of the painting with glazing ultramarine blue and burnt umber where needed to get the darks where they are closer to the original. It’s almost there 😀👍🎨
